In January 2021 I passed my DPAGB (Distinction Photographic Alliance of Great Britrain). Here you can see the 15 images I submitted with their scores. Overall you need 300 points to pass, so an average of 20 per picture. However for each of the 6 judges to give a passing mark of 4 you should ideally get 24 for each picture.

The next and final level, MPAGB, requires images of an exceptionally high standard. I expect it will take me several years to get the 20 shots I need. A few of those below will hopefully be acceptable.

I have no doubt I would not have passed the DPAGB without the support and advice of my mentor, Christine Widdall, who herself has the MPAGB. I owe her a great deal!
